Novel gene products associated with NdhD3/D4-containing NDH-1 complexes are involved in photosynthetic C02 hydration in the cyanobacterium, Synechococcus sp. PCC7942
Cyanobacteria possess light-dependent CO2 uptake activity that results in the net hydration of CO2 to HCO3- and may involve a protein-mediated carbonic anhydrase (CA)-like activity. This process is vital for the survival of cyanobacteria and may be a contributing factor in the ecological success of this group of organisms. Here, via isolation of mutants of Synechococcus sp. PCC7942 that cannot grow under low-CO2 conditions, we have identified two novel genes, chpX and chpY, that are involved in...[Show more]
